Chicken Barbecue to support the Angels of Mercy’s human trafficking and domestic violence prevention and healing efforts! About this event:
All are welcome to the Angels of Mercy’s Chicken Barbecue! Please help us help women move forward by supporting Angels of Mercy’s efforts to prevent human trafficking and domestic violence and help heal those who have been impacted by human trafficking and domestic violence. Angels of Mercy was born out of personal life events involving domestic violence and human trafficking. While we serve women who have experienced homelessness, substance use and mental health disorders, chronic disease, unemployment, justice-involvement, and other forms of life-altering events, we recognize that these issues are connected to human trafficking and domestic violence in one way or another.
Each day, women are making strides across fields in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Historically, these Women in STEM have gone unrecognized, preventing young women from having access to role models who look like them. To change that, we have to start creating that representation. https://youtu.be/DqHO97LkVHU
Young women should be able to see someone who looks like them succeeding in the professional world. This creates STEM identity, which is the power of representation and sense of belonging creating purpose and sense of worth in associated fields. This can benefit future generations as more people feel comfortable to explore their interests. The Women in STEM project aims to demonstrate that there is no one “face of STEM”, it is ambiguous.
